- Karen Brown's Recommendation:
Daniela and her architect husband, Piero, brought the family’s ancient property back to life. Dating back to the 9th century the property contains a Romanesque church, now the site for concerts. The complex of stone houses is surrounded by vineyards, woods, olive groves (source of the family’s prestigious olive oil), and a garden including a collection of English roses. Five suites and two apartments are attached to the main house. Each accommodate two to five persons. Simply furnished with the family’s country antiques, wrought-iron beds, and original paintings by Daniela’s father, a renowned fresco painter. They feature living rooms with fireplace and balconies with view to either the sweeping countryside, down to the sea, or out to the woods, All the units are rented on a self-catering basis but breakfast can be provided for a fee by request. Besides a pool with spectacular views and massage treatments, painting classes are organized in May and October. Along with Siena and Montalcino, there are plenty of off-the-beaten-track sights to see organized by son, Emiliano.
